My Question to the MSM Concerning the Ted Cruz National Enquirer Story

Cap­tain Stot­tle­meyer: There have been cases — doc­u­mented cases — where psy­chics have found miss­ing kids, bod­ies. It happens.

Adrian Monk: Of course it hap­pens! A thou­sand psy­chics mak­ing 10,000 pre­dic­tions a year, two or three of them have to be right.

Mr. Monk and the Psy­chic 2002

I don’t spend a lot of time read­ing minds, so I can’t say con­clu­sively that the National Enquirer’s Ted Cruz story is BS (there is a rea­son why every post on the sub­ject from the my fel­low con­ser­v­a­tives starts with a ver­sion of : “The Enquirer was right about John Edwards”)

For myself given GOP establishment’s high opin­ion of Ted Cruz over the years which is only over­shad­owed by the MSM’s I would think if such a story was true we would have heard about it long before this.

But leav­ing that aside let’s con­sider the cov­er­age from the MSM of the story.

The MSM has decided that the National Enquirer story is now a major story to the point where reporters are ask­ing Cruz if he’s been faith­ful to his wife and Trump sur­ro­gates are accus­ing women on the air of sleep­ing with the Sen­a­tor. I have a question:

Last Year the National Enquirer ran this story con­cern­ing the Demo­c­rat Fron­trun­ner for Pres­i­dent:

EXCLU­SIVE: HILLARY CLIN­TON LES­BIAN LOVERS NAMED IN SECRET EMAILS

The body of the story started:

Now a world-​exclusive inves­ti­ga­tion by The National ENQUIRER reveals that some of the pres­i­den­tial candidate’s famously “deleted” emails are packed full of les­bian ref­er­ences and her lovers’ names.

“I don’t think she’s so con­cerned about emails refer­ring to her as secretly gay,” said a Clin­ton insider. “That’s been out for years – her real fear is that the names of some of her lovers would be made public!”

The ENQUIRER learned the list of Hillary’s les­bian lovers includes a beauty in her early 30s who has often trav­eled with Hillary; a pop­u­lar TV and movie star; the daugh­ter of a top gov­ern­ment offi­cial; and a stun­ning model who got a career boost after allegedly sleep­ing with Hillary. Hillary made the huge mis­take of mix­ing pub­lic and pri­vate mes­sages while using her per­son­al­ized email server – before risk­ing a mas­sive scan­dal by refus­ing to make the doc­u­ments public.

I spec­u­lated at the time that if Hillary got into big trou­ble she could always run as the first les­bian president.

The Enquirer story is dated April 15th 2015 11 months ago. Dur­ing that same 11 months I’ve been fol­low­ing the MSM reli­giously and for some rea­son I’ve not seen the MSM give the National Enquirer story on Hillary’s les­bian affairs any air­time, zip, zero nada.

Mean­while within 24 hours the Ted Cruz story was all over CNN and as of this writ­ing Meme­o­ran­dum has over 100 links to the story from dif­fer­ent sites.

So to review Enquirer story alleg­ing Hillary Clin­ton les­bian affairs, not news­wor­thy, Ted Cruz story alleg­ing affairs or shall we say inves­ti­ga­tion of pos­si­ble affairs, that’s big enough to take air­time away from Brus­sels attack coverage.

I would be delighted to hear the media’s rea­sons why.

Captain Stottlemeyer: There have been cases—documented cases—where psychics have found missing kids, bodies. It happens.

Adrian Monk: Of course it happens! A thousand psychics making 10,000 predictions a year, two or three of them have to be right.

Mr. Monk and the Psychic 2002

I don’t spend a lot of time reading minds, so I can’t say conclusively that the National Enquirer’s Ted Cruz story is BS (there is a reason why every post on the subject from the my fellow conservatives starts with a version of :  “The Enquirer was right about John Edwards”)

For myself given GOP establishment’s high opinion of Ted Cruz over the years which is only overshadowed by the MSM’s I would think if such a story was true we would have heard about it long before this.

But leaving that aside let’s consider the coverage from the MSM of the story.

The MSM has decided that the National Enquirer story is now a major story to the point where reporters are asking Cruz if he’s been faithful to his wife and Trump surrogates are accusing women on the air of sleeping with the Senator. I have a question:

Last Year the National Enquirer ran this story concerning the Democrat Frontrunner for President:

EXCLUSIVE: HILLARY CLINTON LESBIAN LOVERS NAMED IN SECRET EMAILS

The body of the story started:

Now a world-exclusive investigation by The National ENQUIRER reveals that some of the presidential candidate’s famously “deleted” emails are packed full of lesbian references and her lovers’ names.

“I don’t think she’s so concerned about emails referring to her as secretly gay,” said a Clinton insider. “That’s been out for years – her real fear is that the names of some of her lovers would be made public!”

The ENQUIRER learned the list of Hillary’s lesbian lovers includes a beauty in her early 30s who has often traveled with Hillary; a popular TV and movie star; the daughter of a top government official; and a stunning model who got a career boost after allegedly sleeping with Hillary. Hillary made the huge mistake of mixing public and private messages while using her personalized email server – before risking a massive scandal by refusing to make the documents public.

I speculated at the time that if Hillary got into big trouble she could always run as the first lesbian president.

The Enquirer story is dated April 15th 2015 11 months ago.  During that same 11 months I’ve been following the MSM religiously and for some reason I’ve not seen the MSM give the National Enquirer story on Hillary’s lesbian affairs any airtime, zip, zero nada.

Meanwhile within 24 hours the Ted Cruz story was all over CNN and as of this writing Memeorandum has over 100 links to the story from different sites.

So to review Enquirer story alleging Hillary Clinton lesbian affairs, not newsworthy, Ted Cruz story alleging affairs or shall we say investigation of possible affairs, that’s big enough to take airtime away from Brussels attack coverage.

I would be delighted to hear the media’s reasons why.
